Severe Thunderstorms: Isolated severe thunderstorms are possible late this afternoon and evening as a large area of showers and thunderstorms move across portions of Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester and Colleton Counties. Damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 mph will be possible.

Flash Flooding: Rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches with locally higher amounts will be possible across Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester and Colleton Counties through this evening. Most of this rain will fall in a period of about 3 hours, which could result in minor flooding of low-lying and poor drainage areas.
